    Hi all,
    I'm thinking of getting an fpv setup for my phantom 2 and h33d gopro3+.
    I've had a look at a load of threads and been browsing for parts on the net. As I'm in the UK I've been looking at all the uk based suppliers but while looking on ebay I came across the above monitor.
    Does this look a viable part? All help and opinions welcome. Many thanks. Ben

    Looks like some competition for the Black Pearl. I'd buy it.

    The only problem that I see is the sunshade seems a bit inadequate. There is little projection to provide adequate shading. Or maybe it is longer than it appears?

    From the looks of it the sunshade and monitor face is molded as one piece and as pointed out the sunshade is a bit inadequate. But it does have a nice price tag.

    interesting, that looks like what's being advertised as a white RX-LCD5802 other places. imo sun shades are a bit overrated, I've used my LCD5802 in direct sunlight plenty of times and it was fine... no extra sun shade or anything just crank the brightness
